How to Make a Bouquet With Rose & Freesia Flowers

Overview

Whether you're making a bouquet for a wedding or other special occasion, experimenting with different flower combinations makes for a creative and fun process. Roses and freesia flowers go together especially well, and regardless of the color scheme the flowers accentuate one another for even the classiest of bridal accessories.

Step 1

Spread the velvet square in front of you evenly. Depending on the colors of your flowers, the color is optional.

Step 2

Bundle all of the flowers together and place them in the exact center of the velvet. Make sure the blossoms of the flowers overhang the top edge of the fabric by 2 to 3 inches.

Step 3

Move the flowers around to scatter them evenly with the roses in the center of the arrangement. Surround the roses with the freesia.

Step 4

Fold the right edge of the fabric over the bundle of flowers and tuck it beneath them. Continue to roll, keeping the flowers rolling with the material until the fabric forms a coned shape around the stems.

Step 5

Squeeze a few dots of hot glue on the underside of the edge of the velvet in your hand.

Step 6

Press the edge down against the bouquet, adhering it to the layers of fabric. This keeps the bouquet together.

Step 7

Insert a few wispy sprigs of freesia foliage throughout the edges of the bouquet to fill it out a bit.

Step 8

Embellish the outside of the bouquet by tying a thick-ribbon bow around the center of it.
